Sasaab Lodge




Sasaab Lodge has a fabulous location on the high banks of the Ewaso River, just west of Samburu National Reserve and boasts spectacular views as far as Mount Kenya. Sasaab has a contemporary North African style and the design is based on Moroccan construction principles, in which African heat is a main consideration.


There are nine spacious rooms, each over 100m² in area with huge thatched roofs and canvas sides. All rooms at Sasaab have sensational views down the river, over the bush and beyond. Couple this with a cooling plunge pool, and you have the perfect formula for this arid but beautiful region. A central mess area welcomes guests on arrival with a cooling drink, and a large main pool provides the ultimate cooling off spot.

Sasaab Lodge is in the midst of the Westgate Community Conservancy, rich in it's raw Samburu culture and traditions. It has been built with wildlife conservation and preservation of the environment foremost in mind. The lodge has been established in association with the local community who benefit directly and indirectly from your stay at Sasaab.

Sasaab Lodge Activities
